A Good Beer Blog


Have you read The Unbearable Nonsense of Craft Beer - A Rant in Nine Acts by Alan and Max yet? It's out on Kindle as well as Lulu.

Maureen Ogle said this about the book: "... immensely readable, sometimes slightly surreal rumination on beer in general and craft beer in particular. Funny, witty, but most important: Smart. The beer geeks will likely get all cranky about it, but Alan and Max are the masters of cranky..."

Ron Pattinson said: "I'm in a rather odd situation. Because I appear in the book. A fictional version of me. It's a weird feeling."

Is there even such a thing as "Russian beer"? Perhaps it's a simple subliminal dose of economic protectionism -- "How unpatriotic of you to drink German, British or -- gasp! -- American beer! Here, have some proud Russian vodka instead!"

Oh, there would be but whether there are indigenous styles left is unlikely. In the last year <i>Brew Your Own</i> magazine when in search of Baltic porters and found few of that venerable style left. In Dostoyevsky there is reference to <i>kvass</i>, a bread brew, but I don't think that is commercially made. I stand to be corrected.

I dunno, the porn and the thongs would have grabbed my attention too.
